Iowa personal income Increases least of states lou-a h ;i d the lowest increase in personal income for any stale in the nation for the year nf l!)fi(), reports the Iowa Business Digest, which is publish!'.! by the Bureau of Business an.! Economic Research at the. State University of Iowa. Thcugh tin- construction picture and farm sector rf the Iowa economy look bright, the May issue of the Digest reports three "g'nomy" aspects of Iowa personal income: First, it j-o.se only one per eent in Iowa compared to a national average rf five per cent. .Second, Iowa per capita personal int. .me for 1960 was $1,002, compared to $2,242 for the nation. Third, Iowa per capita income for the year was the lowest of the Plains states, including Minnesota, North and South Dakota, ^Nebraska and Kansas. No details on the lag in Iowa income, especially net farm income, are yet available, reports the Digest. The SUI publication reports further discouraging news on Iowa's economy for the opening months ,;f 1961. "First-quarter statistics on 1'JGl employment for the state are equally discouraging." says the SUI publication. Total non-agricultural employment stood at C()2,!iUO in March, the lowest figure for any rronlh since Mav of 1959. This figure would have to increase by about 10,000 to bring it to the level of May, I960. A decline of 2.4 per cent was recorded for manufacturing employment in the same quarter. The figure of 1G9.500 was the- lowest reported since September, 195H, when industry was Just beginning to recover from the 1957- fiR recr-.ssion. Mamifacturirif! employ men t would have to increase by about 5.0.!!) to bring this figure up to "Kit. rf May, LOGO, the Digest reports. G nstru'-tion cont i 1 a c t s are perking up, however, after very poor s.'iowings in January and February. The value of construction contracts aw.'irdefl in March was SH5.7 million compared to S.'ilU million a year ago and S11.3 mi'.l'i n and $19.9 million in January and February of this year. The January figure was a five- year low ;md ns a result the first quarter total is still running 17 pur cent behind that for last year, the Digest says. More cheerful news is coming from the farm sector of the Iowa economy, the SUI publication re- ivrts. For the first three months of 1HG1, cash farm receipts were up 15 per cent over the same period in 1960. The index of prices received by Iowa farmers on all farm products lose 6.8 per cent during the first four months of 1961, while the index of prices paid by U. S. farmers rose onjy 0.6 per cent. The favorable relation between prices and expenses an; thus u partial explanation of the improving agricultural situation, says the Digest. Grapefruit A grapefruit tree is now bearing near-ripe fruit and at the same time is in blossom m the basement of the home of Mr. and Mrs. Petur A. Peiffcr in Sigourney. Mr. Pcrffw brought the !ree from Texas about six ycnrs ago. It is planted in a large tub. and thrives inside in winter, outside in summer.
